I’m running the latest piaware on a PI 3 to feed to FA, using an RTL dongle.
I’ve got another machine (Windows) with an Airspy connected and running adsbspy. Is there a way for me to take the data collected from adsbspy and pipe it into the RPI as a second receiver?
My basic thought is that I wanted to see if the Airspy on a different computer with a different antenna would be picking up things that the piaware setup is not. And if so, I’d like is to display on the piaware webserver so that I could see the additional planes and then make sure it is also being sent to FA.
I realize FA allows you to have multiple receivers, but this is really only a test and I figured that I’d rather just feed the output of adsbspy into the piaware stuff. Obviously this would be over the network.
I’m unsure of what type of format adsbspy is outputting, but I think it’s some sort of “raw” output over TCP. I tried setting adsbspy to connect to various listening ports on the RPI (rather than having it connect to sdrsharp.com), but I have no idea what port it ought to be connecting to on the RPI.
Is what I’m attempting to do even possible? Does it even make sense to do this?
